All-Steel Rivets are an Steel Shell with a steel Mandrel (shaft). Generally used when fastening steel sheeting. Not recommended for fastening Aluminium, Stainless, Copper or Brass due to chance of galvanic corrosion occurring due to being classed as dissimilar metals.
These are still classed as a Blind Rivet.
Note sizing :- first number is size i.e 4 = 1/8″(3.3mm), 5 = 5/32″(4.1mm), 6 = 3/16″(4.9mm), 8 = 1/4″(6.5mm)
Second number denotes Grip Length or maximum thickness to be riveted. This number is eqaul to the number of 1/16″ increments i.e 2 =2/16 or 1/8″(3.2mm), 3 = 3/16″(4.8mm), 4 = 4/16th or 1/4″(6.4mm) and so on.
So a 6-4 rivet is a 3/16″(4.9mm) thick x 4 = 4/16th or 1/4″(6.4mm)(grip thickness) Rivet.
